About the property

4 BR, 3 ba. Upper and lower decks w/ Ohio River view. (Deborah's Guesthouses)

This graceful Queen Anne-style home sits directly on the Ohio River. The curving front porch invites you to 'sit a spell' and enjoy the river breezes. The back deck overlooks the river directly below, and stunning sunsets over the water melt your worries away.

LARGER PHOTOS: Scroll down to the bottom of the page.

Downstairs: The master bedroom has a queen-size bed, a full-sized futon, and an attached bath.

The second bedroom sleeps 5 in bunk beds and a futon.

Another full bath is down the hall.

The dining room is large, as is the kitchen overlooking the back deck and the Ohio River.

The laundry room is off the kitchen, and includes an iron and ironing board. Bring your own liquid detergent if you want to get some laundry taken care of during your stay.

Upstairs: Two bedrooms, one full bath, kitchenette with stove and double-oven, sink, plus a fridge in the 3-season room overlooking the river.

Bedroom #1 upstairs has a queen bed, plus a daybed with trundle. Off this bedroom is the laundry room closet, plus a queen mattress on the floor.

Bedroom #2 upstairs has a queen bed plus a daybed with a slide-out platform bed underneath.

Check-in: 4 pm EST. Check-out: 11 am EST (lock box)

Items provided in each apartment: Sheets, wash cloths and towels, toilet tissue, some paper towels, hairdryer, pots and pans, dishes, coffee maker, toaster, dish soap and detergent.

Items to bring along: Soap and shampoo, liquid laundry detergent (no powder please, clogs up septic system :), extra paper towels, napkins, coffee filters, foil and cling wrap, baggies, Kleenex, drinking water (The Victorian uses a well--perfectly fine for cooking and laundry and even drinking, but some prefer bottled)

About Deborah

While I was living in The Cottage (VRBO 384587) I noticed The Victorian three blocks away was in foreclosure. I love old houses! After seeing the monumental overhaul it needed, saying a few prayers, and talking to family and friends, I bought it...and was instantly overwhelmed!

First project: Put in a huge deck in back--the beautiful views kept me inspired during the long rehab. And now it's all finished and worth every bit of the TLC it required. Hopefully it blesses my guests as well!

Deborah purchased this house in 2007

Guestbook comments from the owner

Cute Victorian Home!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed in one of Deborah's Guesthouses. It was great for our group of 15.

The second kitchen upstairs and three restrooms were great!

Can't wait for our next trip!

Just short of 5 Star; but close

  • 4 of 5

Our stay, accomodations and get together were wonderful. We were very pleased. The only draw back was the sewage smell outside the rear of the house.

Very nice spot on the river!

  • 4 of 5

Nice views, an old house with lots of character. The mattresses were very hard, but otherwise was in nice condition.

Beautiful view! Lots of room for many to stay! Exceptionally clean!!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. There were 8 of us and we didn't begin to use all of the bed space. Great for a group or family retreat.

Great place for a large group!

  • 4 of 5

We came to see the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter. There were 15 in our group, and someone said they actually counted places for up 20 to sleep if you count the foldout couch. The bedrooms all worked out well for the variety of people, and 3 bathrooms sure came in handy! I can't imagine there was a place to stay closer to the museum than this was. Its too bad that both evenings we got "home" a little late to enjoy the sun porch and the great view of the river.

My bed seemed a little "crunchy" with the plastic mattress cover, and yet I sure understand why it's a good thing to have those. Also the gathering room area feels like a cross between a dining room and living room, but we were able to bring chairs in a big circle and all enjoy playing games in 1 big group.
